Take I-70 West from Denver, past the town and three exits of Idaho Springs. Take the next exit marked "Fall River Road". Just past the bottom of the ramp, take a right (north) on Fall River Road. Follow this road up past the town of Alice to one of two parking areas for the clearly marked trailhead to St. Mary's Glacier. , im heading up there in the morning

It's pretty funny -- the exit used to be signed as "St. Mary's Glacier" off of I-70. But people bought up private property in there and then they got tired of all the tourists driving in off of the highway to look for the glacier. They actually got the sign changed (about ten years ago) so now it just says "St. Mary's."

I did the drive in my Camry. As long as there hasn't been any snow you'll be fine getting up there. Good luck!
